The Chieftain is a medium-sized combat ship manufactured by Lakon Spaceways through a partnership with the Alliance. It is designed not only to dish out punishment, but to avoid it. The Chieftain is more maneuverable than ships of similar size and weight, and its combat profile means it can more than hold its own in a fight.
The ship also boasts three internal military compartments, allowing the pilot to equip a shield cell bank, hull reinforcements or module reinforcements.
It is planned for release with the Chapter One update of Elite Dangerous: Beyond in Q1 2018.
The Chieftain is intended to occupy a combat-oriented niche between the Python and the Federal Assault Ship. Its agility allows it to hit targets hard without overextending and having to bear the brunt of an enemy attack. The two large and single medium hardpoints are aligned along the ship's central axis, making them suitable for fixed weapons. All small and large hardpoints are also placed above the cockpit, with only the medium hardpoint underneath. Landing gear extends from beneath the front of the ship's hull and the two rear engine nacelles, which rotate.
